Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote POP3 server is affected by multiple file handling flaws.

Description :

According to its banner, the remote host is running a version of the

handling vulnerabilities. First, it fails to properly drop root
rights when processing certain local files, which could lead to
overwriting or creation of arbitrary files as root. And second, it
fails to set the process umask, potentially permiting creation of
group- or world-writable files.
